Synopsis

Against a backdrop of an ongoing war, Hajar returns home to her Palestinian family for a wedding in a small village in the northern part of Galilee. She intends to tell her father that she is in love with Matthew, a British art teacher. Her family responds with hostility, threatening and ultimately rejecting her. Now, with Ali, her cousin, wanting to marry her, Majd, her brother, going through major financial problems and Marwan, another brother, collaborating with the Israelis, Hajar feels she must choose between her love for Matthew and her commitment to the family. When their father falls into a coma, internal conflicts erupt, revealing long buried secrets and lies.
